  2. A crawfish and corn chowder recipe with NO CORN in it…..wake up and proofread before you publish if you want to be taken seriously, So(not)Fab.

    • Jim,
      Thanks for your passionate response and for noticing our grave error. It is actually worse than you thought…The recipe we published was not the crawfish corn chowder recipe at all, but the recipe for Lance’s Award-Winning Etouffee. While moving the massive amount of material from our old site to our new one, we attached the wrong title to the recipe. We’ve corrected the recipe so that it is, actually, the April 2011 Crawfish and Corn Chowder recipe originally published by Louisiana Cookin’ Magazine.
